Mason Ramsey, the 11-year-old boy who yodeled his way into America’s heart, has just reached another career milestone.
On Thursday night, the toe-tapping, cowboy hat-wearing kid released his long-awaited debut single appropriately titled “Famous.” The record arrives just weeks after Mason exploded out of anonymity with the now-viral video of him singing in an Illinois Walmart. Don’t act like you’re unfamiliar:
The fact that this kid was able to accomplish all of this within a relatively short time is pretty impressive; however, it seem’s Mason’s winning streak is far from over. In addition to releasing “Famous,” the yodeling kid has also inked a contract with Atlantic Records and Big Loud. The labels confirmed this shortly before the single dropped Thursday night.
“I’d been to Nashville a few times before, but never thought something like this would happen,” Mason said in press release. “It’s a dream to sign with Atlantic and Big Loud. I loved recording ‘Famous’ and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
You can listen to the new track now on Apple Music and iTunes. It's also on Spotify.
